This is a beautiful track, but not clearly marked after the first couple signs. Lots of great places to stop and swim. Very easy, with some uphill jaunts.

So beautiful on a sunny day! It must be a gorgeous swimming spot in the summer. Very easy except for the little "summit," which is steeper but quick. Beautiful views and perfect lunch spot

Nice hike. Pretty straight forward and not too difficult with some great views.

Stunning hike with a jaw dropping view at the very top of the picnic spot!! But I don’t agree with the “easy” difficulty... it took us about 1 hour and 15 min to get to the top of if the peak starting from the beginning on Bob’s Cove... some steep uphills on the way and a VERY steep 15 minute ending to get to the tip. Definitely not easy or flat, more moderate (were pretty fit people in our 20s). But very worth it for the view is of both sides of the lake and an amazing panoramic view of the turquoise waters. If you want a shorter quick version (with the view) you can park at the second lot and just walk up the last 30 min and get to the top. We did that on the way down and hopped a ride to our car!

This path follows the shore of the lake to Sunshine bay. Nice casual stroll with just a little uphill.

nice hike along the lake just outside Queenstown. GPS is inaccurate and you need to keep going until you see the Bob's Cove Recreation Area sign. there are a couple of steeper spots on this hike but very manageable.

It was a beautiful track, but not clearly marked after the first couple signs and a lot of people just popping in at different spots to go to the water. Lots of great places to stop and swim though. Very easy, with some uphill jaunts.
